Cross-Examination of the Sympathetic Plaintiff in a Personal Injury Case: Plaintiff and Defense Strategies


This webinar will equip trial lawyers to handle the challenging task of cross-examining a plaintiff claiming significant injury. Defense counsel is between a rock and a hard place: push too hard in the wrong way and create sympathy for the plaintiff; hold back too much and the defense fails to point out critical flaws in the plaintiff's case. Plaintiff's counsel is always ready to exploit this dilemma.

Our panel of veterans will discuss when to opt for a deposition-focused or trial-focused approach, how to prepare for either, and an appropriate tone to discredit the plaintiff's testimony without engendering jury sympathy.
